Daniel Holgado takes his first grand prix win at the front of a ten-rider lead group in the Portimao Moto3 Grand Prix, but his post-race celebrations turned scary when Joel Kelso slammed into the back of the Tech3 KTM rider a few seconds after taking the chequered flag.

Holgado remained on board but Kelso, an early race leader, was thrown violently down the track and needed medical assistance. The Australian, who finished ninth, appeared to reach for a tear-off and did not notice Holgado celebrating until it was too late.

David Munoz and Diogo Moreira completed the podium.

Holgado's victory was also the first in the junior grand prix class for Tech3, adding to their race wins in 250GP, Moto2 and MotoGP.
